Everyone knows Beauty In The Pot (in Singapore), but do you know that the concept is inspired by Taiwanese brand, Wu Lao Guo? More interestingly known as “elixir health pot”, this is one of the most popular hotpot places in Taipei, and there are three outlets across the city – every one is packed daily and reservations are most definitely required.
And you may wonder why they are so popular. That’s simply because they are more than just a hotpot restaurant.

The million dollar question – is Wu Lao Guo worth a visit when in Taipei?
